It is well pulled up

Ca. 1797. Red chalk on laid paper. Not on display

Among the Caprichos’ principal themes is a critique of prostitution. Goya’s comment on this drawing is preserved in a document now in the Prado’s collection, which includes his comments on the other drawings in the series. In a satirical tone it refers to the procuress’s supervision of the young prostitute who pulls up her stocking to enhance her attractiveness, saying, Oh Auntie Curra is no idiot. She knows how important it is that stockings be nicely pulled up.
